    I'm curious because, Accuweather.com has me at -1::F right now, and Wunderground.com has me at -7.8::F. I'm colder than that outside right now, but Wunderground is closer to my temp.
    So, who do you find more accurate?
    Thanks, JB

    I like Wunderground but my wife uses Accuweather.
    To me Wunderground is a little more accurate.

    The wunderground site is correct within a degree or two if I pick the right weather station. There used to be one just down the road but it's gone now.

    Wunderground says 43* while it's 39* here. Either way it's poruing rain and my yard is flooding cause the ground is still frozen.

    Closest wunderground station is about 15 miles away, as the crow flies, and at a bit lower elevation. They say -6::F right now, but my back deck thermo. says -12::F. Still closer than accuweather's temps..

    I guess a lot of the stations are hobbyists'? Might be another thing to spend some money on...hmmmm....
